EVGrieve, my apologies if you've already seen this or posted this. I received an email from Harry Bubbins at Village Preservation with additional links for local small businesses who need help. I will copy/paste it here (I'd imagine they'd be fine what that) in case you think it's helpful. Be safe, be well.

Dear friend,

As you know, many of our struggling small businesses have set up crowdsourcing campaigns to meet operating costs during these challenging times.

If you are a small business owner or know one who needs help setting this up, please let us know -- we can help connect you to such a resource.

In addition, Village Preservation wants to be supportive in ways we can, like using our social media platforms to help promote small businesses in our neighborhood.

Tag @gvshp_nyc on Instagram so it is easier for us to share on our Instagram Stories.

Finally, our friends at East Village Community Coalition have set up a Business resources page here:
with information on how to apply for grants or loans if you are a small business owner.

Be well and feel free to email me to see how we can help.
